Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Today's Matchups
February 14, 2015
It’s Saturday, which means it’s time once again for us to delve into the fantasy hockey waiver wire and check out some of the hot trends and sleepers every owner should know about. We’ve got our usual lineup of notable names in store for you today, so let’s take a closer look at the stats and see if anyone’s worth your time.
Tyler Toffoli, RW, Los Angeles Kings: Toffoli’s sleeper status has pretty much worn off, given the tear he’s been on over the past three games. In that span, he’s recorded five goals and an assist with a plus-5 rating.
Toffoli now has 18 goals and 17 helpers on the year, which is one of the top totals on the team. Coming off his first career hat trick, he should absolutely be on your roster and in your lineup for the time being at least.

Anders Lee, C/LW, New York Islanders: Lee has been turning heads over the past three games as well. In that frame, he’s accounted for three goals, an assist and a plus-2 rating. Perhaps not coincidentally, all three games were wins for New York.
Lee has worked his way up to 18 goals and six assists on the year, while carrying a nice plus-7 rating. He’s doing good things with his ice time right now.
John Gibson, G, Anaheim Ducks: Gibson is likely the most-added goalie in fantasy right now, given his nice performance in Carolina this week. In that one he allowed just one goal and helped the Ducks steal a win on 35 saves.
Gibson will most likely be between the pipes for Washington tomorrow, so if you need a stopgap net-minder he’s your guy.
Kevin Hayes, C/RW, New York Rangers: Hayes had his first career multi-point game on Thursday in Colorado. In that one he picked up a goal and two assists while recording a nice plus-4 rating.
Hayes has been trickling in the points this season, posting nine goals and 15 assists so far. He’s an up-and-coming player in New York and is worth kicking the tires on in fantasy if you need the depth.
Mikko Koivu, C, Minnesota Wild: The veteran Koivu is no stranger to being a conversation piece in the fantasy community, and he’s raised his profile recently with some nice performances on the ice.
Koivu has six assists and a goal in his last five games, giving him a total of eight scores and 25 helpers on the year. He’s still got some miles left in the tank, and while the Wild are playing well he shouldn’t be overlooked as a fantasy piece.
